Q: i have to do a report on an animal, including the five characteristics of a vertebrate:body covering, structure for breathing, warm or cold blooded, type of birth and care of young, skeletal structure.Which dinosaur has the most information available on these things? Thank you.
from steve a, voorheesville, ny,usa; April 29, 2002

A: The dinosaur with the most of these is Maiasaura, since a large nesting ground of Maiasaura has been found (in Montana), and it included fossilized skeletons of adults, juveniles, and newly-hatched Maiasaura -- plus nests with eggs. For a page on Maiasaura, click here. All dinosaurs breathed using lungs and hatched from eggs.
